Age-exclusive housing

Because of the recent trend away from providing ‘wardens’ or Scheme Managers in traditional sheltered and retirement housing schemes, EAC has introduced the new description ‘age-exclusive housing’ for schemes or developments that cater exclusively for older people, usually incorporate design features helpful to older people, and may have communal facilities such as a residents’ lounge, guest suite and shared garden, but do not provide any regular on-site support to residents.
